The third installment of the Jurassic World saga from Universal Pictures is still a long ways off, but its recent sequel Fallen Kingdom is still quite fresh in the minds of moviegoers, enough that LEGO has announced new sets to come out in 2019, plus an animated special to boot. Said animated special was to be aired late this year, and at last LEGO has fleshed out information about it. The title is LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit, to be aired on NBC network. LEGO posits this special as taking place before the events of Jurassic World in 2015.
The LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit follows Claire Dearing, operations manager of the Jurassic World theme park, as she receives orders from her boss and park owner Simon Masrani, to transfer three dinosaurs to a secret exhibition area that houses a new attraction, touted as the greatest thing since the discovery of dinosaurs.
Claire thus takes animal behaviorist Owen Grady from his current assignment of teaching his baby raptors in order to transport the dinosaurs in question. But that mission’s a bit tougher than expected; and there’s something about the new attraction that’s more than meets the eye (though it’s not Transformers-related, sorry).
We can expect this LEGO Jurassic World animated special to premiere on NBC in two parts, on November 29. The Secret Exhibit will then be uploaded on several streaming platforms (NBC app and Hulu among them) on November 30, and will finally be available on DVD in January 15, 2019.
